Looks like my project that didn't want to die finally kicked the bucket while I was gone this weekend. I got a call from my recruiter on voice mail - saying they want me to come in on Monday to the office like normal, that they'll find something for me. That is, if I want to stay. I love the manager I'm working for, so yep, count me in.
I'm on to my next project... first meeting is going to be on Wednesday - so I'm hunting down info about the project on the intranet to figure out what's up with it. Of the three of us previously on the old project - two of us are moving on to the same new project - and one was sent home. Have to say, I'm glad I was given the option of staying on.
